A few weeks ago we were invited by Disney to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, but it was early in the season and costumes were scarce. Not even Walmart or Target had their costumes out yet, so I wasn’t sure what we were going to wear to the party. At the last minute, I found Halloween shirts for my boys, but I still wasn’t sure what to do. I had never tried Disney Bounding really, so I figured I’d give it a go! My favorite Disney Princess is Rapunzel, so there wasn’t a doubt there, I just had to figure out how to put it together!
Around that same time, I received a beautiful purple dress from Unique Vintage. It was part of their new Villains line, but you really could use it for anything. Why not Rapunzel? So, the dress part was taken care of. Rapunzel wouldn’t be seen without Pascal, right? I took my Pascal Tsum Tsum and pinned it to the shoulder of the dress. He stayed put all night and didn’t cause any damage to the material. For my hair, I braided it to the side, and added flowers. The flowers were easy, I hot glued crafting flowers to a few clips I purchased at the dollar store! For a finishing touch, I wore Tangled earrings and a necklace my friend Maggie made (her shop is called Monorails and Moore). By the time I was done, I was pretty happy with the finished product.
One more thing in addition to the outfit, was this adorable Tangled wristlet I bought when we were at the D23 Expo in California last summer. It’s affordable, and you can purchase one for yourself on the Disney Store’s website!
When we got to the party, not only did we have a magical time, but I also surprisingly got a LOT of compliments on my Rapunzel costume. I truly felt like a princess, as crazy as that sounds. Being that I have boys, we never do “girly” things at Disney, but we did go see Rapunzel and took some extra photos by the lanterns. I was pretty happy.
My first attempt at Disney Bounding was a success! If I can pull something together, anyone can! It wasn’t that hard, or too expensive, but it was a great time. I’d even consider doing a bounding idea next year for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party again, rather than a store bought costume. With a little imagination, you can turn yourself into your favorite Disney character too! Good luck, and boo to you!
